2016 Chicago Review Course in Neurosurgery

Chicago, IL US
January 28, 2016 to February 7, 2016

The Chicago Review Course in Neurological Surgery has been recognized as the most thorough review of neurosurgery to residents and practicing physicians for more than thirty years. Founded in 1973, this course was launched in an effort to provide a comprehensive and intensive review for residents about to take their boards, newly established neurosurgeons and practicing neurosurgeons who want to make sure that their diagnostic and surgical skills are current. The course, formerly organized through the Cook Country Graduate School, is now being offered through Chicago Review Courses, and continues under the direct supervision of Leonard I. Kranzler, MD.

This rigorous eleven-day course offers nearly 100 course topics with up to 12 hours of daily lecture, and has an international faculty whose topic expertise is unsurpassed. This comprehensive review reflects the clinical developments in the field and what constitutes optimal care in diagnostic and therapeutic approaches, and management of complications. This course uniquely blends coverage of the relevant basic science with in-depth lectures on virtually all areas of neurological surgery, not to mention a superb review of neuroradiology.
